dispatch code to constexpr and nonconstexpr implementation.
By this I mean
const std::string s("bla");
std::regex r2(s + std::to_string(time(NULL))); //NULL to upset STL
Here r1 and r2 look the same to the poor regex constructor, although one is
known at compile time.
disclaimer: I admit I did not follow C++20 standardization so maybe those
nice people from WG21 gave us some magic tools to do this.
